NASA's Shuttle Endeavour Prepares for STS-127 Mission
Technicians in the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida attached the lifting sling to space shuttle Endeavour for rotation and hoisting on April 10. The shuttle then was attached to its external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters for its upcoming mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour also will stand by at Kennedy's launch Pad 39B in the unlikely event that a rescue mission is necessary during space shuttle Atlantis' upcoming mission to upgrade NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
